Comprising of 550 acres of arable and grassland which is utilised by the noted Pennyspot herd of 40 rare breed White Park cows and their calves, together with the de Morley herd of Lincoln Red cattle. Situated in natural countryside on the edge of a Site of Special Scientific Interest (a conservation designation denoting a protected area), this is the perfect base for discerning guests wishing to escape the stresses and strains of everyday life. There are wonderful walks that start from the doorstep, including the Wensum Way 12 mile footpath that stretches from Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum to Lenwade; linking one end of the Nar Valley Way with Marriott’s Way.
